There are a few 27” 144Hz WQHD (2560 x 1440) models on the market now. Those with VA panels, such as the AOC AG273QCX and Samsung C27HG70 adopt curved screens. The Samsung S27R750Q (also referred to as the LS27R750Q with additional regional suffixes) is currently unique in that it uses a flat 27” panel with similar specifications. The monitor is a member of the SR75 Series of so-called ‘Space Monitors’. This isn’t a galactic reference, but rather a reference to the use of a clamp-style hinged stand in place of the usual desktop stand with base. You clamp the monitor to the end of your desk, with only a small footprint left at the top. The stand neck has a hinge mechanism which allows you to adjust the screen position – the height of the stand and how close it is to your eyes are adjusted together. Either high up and flush with the wall, or low down and flush with your desk. The bezels are also slender, particularly at the top and sides where a dual-stage design is used. This comprises a slim hard plastic outer component and slender panel border – although the panel border is not as slim as it appears in many of the marketing photos so be wary of that. The OSD (On Screen Display) is controlled by a joystick at the rear of the monitor, towards the right side as viewed from the front.
A 27” WQHD (2560 x 1440) VA (Vertical Alignment) panel is used, offering a 3000:1 static contrast ratio and 178°/178° specified viewing angles. A light matte anti-glare screen surface is employed, maintaining superior clarity and vibrancy compared to ‘stronger’ matte screen surfaces. 10-bit colour is supported, whilst a flicker-free WLED backlight is used which offers 100% sRGB coverage and 250 cd/m² typical maximum luminance. The monitor supports a 144Hz refresh rate and has a specified 4ms grey to grey response time – to be taken with the usual dose of salt. PbP (Picture by Picture) functionality is included, whilst LBL (Low Blue Light) settings including ‘Eye Saver Mode’ and the ‘Warm2’ colour temperature setting also feature. The included stand offers tilt adjustment and height adjustment via the hinged mechanism mentioned earlier. There are no VESA holes for alternative mounting. The ports face sideways inside a recessed cavity at the rear of the monitor. An angled HDMI and power cable is included which can be neatly routed through a central channel at the rear of the stand neck. The ports include; DC power input (external ‘power brick’), Mini DP 1.2 and an HDMI 2.0 port.
Further information can be found on the manufacturer’s website. The monitor is available now for ~$400 in the US and for a similar price in other regions.
